Jazz Band

The Claudia Taylor Johnson Jazz Bands are a vital part of the band program. After marching band season they serve as Ambassadors for the Johnson Band Program and are the primary performance groups for all types of events in the community.  

In addition to many performance opportunities within the school district they have performed for the President's Breakfast at the 2014 Tournament of Roses Parade, the State of the City Address for the City of San Antonio, Senior Awards Ceremonies, graduations, various music contests, and private events.


Alan Sharps is the director of the jazz groups. He has performed professionally for 30 years in Miami, Virginia Beach, and San Antonio. His students have performed for Broadway shows, written music for Hollywood movies and voted producer of the year with many productions. 

The Johnson Jazz Bands are available to book for events between December and May of each school year by contacting Mr. Sharps at (210) 356-0519.
